So, I think I’m starting back at BrookfieldNOW

Never walk away from a golden opportunity, and well, one presented itself today. I’m going to be posting Brookfield stuff (read that as a general description) on a resurrected Brookfield City News blog for

I could give you the detailed reasons why, but I think the general reason should hold: I want the information I have on Brookfield to be seen by the widest possible audience, and that audience likely goes to BrookfieldNOW.

No doubt, I’ve established myself comfortably in the state realm of bloggers, aka the Cheddarsphere. I’m happy with my personal blog. I’m actually looking forward to building a couple more, and this move should help with the audience for all of them.

Work? Sure it’s work. But I think it’s for a good cause. An informed electorate is the best electorate.

Come on. Don’t be shy. Let me know what you think.


  1. Congrats, looking forward to the buzz.

  2. From what I read in your first post, I’m not sure it’s worth the effort. The calibre of the exchanges on some of the sites is so low it borders on the absurd. Good luck, anyway! On second thought it is absurd….

  3. Well I’m going to give it a try. I will attempt to elevate the discussion a bit. I’ve given myself a timeline, and if it’s hopeless, then I’ll pull the plug.

    I do miss having a place for the Brookfield stuff to be read. Taking that on my own just never worked as well. Plus, and this is a big plus, I have something I need to talk about and won’t mind having a deep moat for protection.

  4. I welcome your blog. Your comments on local issues are always insightful and BrookfieldNOW needs some decent reporting/commentary. The coverage of local news is pretty sparse. I had hopes for the Patch but stopped reading it after it turned into a long forum for people to argue with each other over national issues. I want to see more on the local issues.
    The big story I saw today is the one about the high school roofs needing immediate $ 1 million repair. After we just spent $ 63 million “remodeling” the high schools due to “needed” infrastructure upgrades. But no attention to the ROOF? I cannot believe this. We was robbed!!!

  5. We was robbed, indeed! (You crack me up.)

    I’ll be getting to that one next week.

    Waiting for a local blogger to take on the story of the “alleged” party where the dad wouldn’t let the police enter. Surprised no one will touch it
